It is interesting that along with "masculine" wine and wine available for a female - "Bad Girl" with pink label. However, the drink is famous not only painted black sheep. The wine was deservedly appreciated by Robert Parker, has caused a stir among fans and experts all over the world, and even served as the creation of new trends - fashion for "garage" wines.

It is an eminent expert Parker arrived to assess the wine Château Valandraud and calling in his commentary on the manufacturer's "bad boy", Jean-Luc suggested Tyunevanu name for wine.
Jean-Luc Tyunevan - a recognized leader "garazhistov", born in Algeria - moved with his parents to France at the age of 10 years. In 1984, he opened a small grocery store, which soon became a wine bar, and then the liquor store. For the purchase of the vineyard Jean-Luc decided only in 1989. The name "Chateau Valandraud" which winemaker Jean-Luc Tyunven gave his initially very modest ownership (0.6 ha), was born from the mixing of the words "Val" (fr. "Valley") and his wife's maiden name of Jean-Luc Muriel - Androud. This winemaker secured it a significant contribution to their common cause. On the improvement of the production process, Jean-Luc experimented for years to come. Barrels in which the wine was aged for lack of other suitable places, put right in your garage. When in 1995, the brainchild of the estate Valandraud finally received the recognition it deserves Robert Parker, there was a boom in this "garage" wine. His new wife is not high status reaffirmed in subsequent years.

Nevertheless, the commercial success of a family business that stands out attentiveness to detail speaks for itself.
